WHEN TECHNOLOGY IS TOO MUCH
This video is structured around two main narrative voices and a character illustrating what the voice-over says while a singer often merely (= simply) repeats what's just been said.
The setting is a christian home and church, so this particular context is particulary meaningful.
We can notice on various occasions that the main character is addicted to high-tech products, mostly smartphones.
He is shown as a family man unable to interact (= communicate) with his wife except through texting.
He is also shown as a church-goer incapable of attending worship without all his phones vibrating all the time, making him look like he's full of the holy spirit.
Finally, he is depicted as a computer geek/guru whose life has become extremely complicated instead of having been simplified.
Basically, this video means that high technology has become a religion for many people, even christians who are not supposed to be materialistic.
Then, in a christian lifestyle, quite a few church-goers and believers tend to focus more on materialistic issues than on spiritual ones.
We can add that the technology reigns supreme for many people who venerate (= revere) is as a God enlightening his followers.
The question is : is this real progress for humankind?
WHEN TECHNOLOGY IS... MISSING
Two people are stuck on an escalator in a place that seems literally empty (= deserted).
The man looks upset (= annoyed). He might be an office worker walking to his job.
The woman claims that she's already late, so for her this is the last straw (that breaks the camel's back).
At one point, she's about to cry and asks (= begs) for a phone. She yells (= screams) for help.
In short, the two of them look helpless/ clueless/ powerless/ even hopeless.
We can relate this situation to a fairly common one in real life : getting stuck in/on an elevator.
The difference is that in this situation, people have the right to feel panicky (= panic/ freak out) whereas on an escalator, there is no reason (whatsover at all) to panic (= be scared).
The video points out the increasing reliance (= dependance) of human beings on technology. If it goes missing, it is as if a crutch had been taken away, so these two people cannot even climb (= walk up) the escalator, which would be the normal thing to do. We could also think that technological progress makes humans lazy or at least less prone to (= inclined to) take initiatives/think by themselves.
